Pizza (Feta Cheese, Black Olives and Onions)

Is it pizza night in your house? Our pizza night is Saturday - when the kids, our friends and our kids' friends all know that 2 or 3 pizzas will be ready at 6:30 pm and everyone is welcome.

I like to keep mini pizza crusts on hand - premade - so that my 14 year old daughter can fix one after school. I've found that in a pinch I've made myself an awesome 'single supper' out of these as well when everyone was on different schedules that night and I was craving pizza.

One of my all time favorites is a recipe I've posted before - it's a mixture of feta cheese, mayonnaise, garlic, onions, black olives with a little oregano and a few other ingredients (photo below);



A couple months ago I found this recipe - which is very similar yet different. It calls for many more onions and much more garlic than my recipe does... and has no mayonnaise to hold it together. An interesting recipe that I plan to try so I'm posting it here to add to my collection. I may have to make it tomorrow night for our Saturday Night Pizza Night!

Greek Style Pizza
(not my usual but an interesting variation)

Prepare basic pizza dough. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

1/4 c garlic, chopped
1 c ripe black olives, chopped
2 large sweet Spanish onions
1 small Bermuda onion
2 cups Feta cheese
2 T peanut oil
4 t olive oil

Saute onion and garlic in peanut oil until lightly brown. Sprinkle top of dough with virgin oil, put layer of onion and garlic on, cover with Feta cheese and ripe olives. Bake 15 to 18 minutes. Cheese should be half melted and crust light brown.
